The “mights” of life

You know, Christ might come back tonight at midnight and take us all home. Your cousin Vinnie might have a heart attack tomorrow at work and die. Your daughter might start smoking dope. She might become an addict. Your son might win a full football scholarship to the University of Alabama. Your brother-in-law might win the lottery. You might lose your job with the pending merger. You might test positive for Covid. Your wife might catch it from you and die.

Who knows what “might” happen? When you use that little helping verb in a sentence you’re projecting the possibility of things happening in the future. Good or bad. But you don’t have a snowball’s chance of predicting (what you’re really doing) what will happen in the future, (in an hour or tomorrow or any time.) Most of the time (north of 85%) things we think might happen never do.

But do you know who does? Make your pick

___Mark Zuckerberg

___President Biden

____Donald Trump (He only think he does)

____Almighty God

One of Almighty God’s most amazing attributes is His omniscience. He knows everything there is to know. How can he know absolutely everything? Because he made absolutely everything. That breath you just took–was a gift from God. God is never surprised. He knows every person better than they know themselves; and he knew them before they were born. He knows what every person thinks, feels, does and says.

And everything God knows he will ultimately use in his purpose and plan for each of our good and His glory.

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
